WATCH: Fox News host claims germs don't exist because he can't see them
"I don't think I've washed my hands for ten years".
What did your parents or guardians teach you during your infancy? How to use a spoon, tie your shoelaces, brush your teeth, wipe your backside and - hopefully - to wash your hands regularly, especially after using the toilet.
It's a pretty fundamental part of becoming a fully functioning adult human being, washing your hands. It's a basic task that helps stop the spread of diseases and infections. And it's actually really easy. You just get some hot water, a bit of soap, and scrub them clean.
And yet, some heathens go through life never washing their hands. Take Fox News' Pete Hegseth for example. The senior political analyst for Fox News admitted live on air, unprompted that he hasn't washed his hands for ten years.
He went on to claim that because he can't see germs, they must not be real.

His theory that 'I can't see them, therefore they're not real' may not go down too well with some of his more religious followers.
You'd also expect him to reconsider his 2019 resolution to say things on air that he says off air after this.
